Palace’s point at Goodison Park was down to Everton’s profligacy in front of goal rather than anything else, but Roy Hodgson was nevertheless content with his side’s performance as the Eagles held their Champions League-chasing opponents to a 1-1 draw on Monday night.
Guaita frustrated Richarlison and Dominic Calvert-Lewin throughout the evening, although the Eagles number one could not prevent James Rodriguez breaking the deadlock on the 56-
minute mark, but Chelsea loanee Michy Batshuayi had only been on the pitch for two minutes before lashing home the equaliser in the dying embers.
Palace’s fighting spirit was rightly applauded at Goodison Park, but that result makes hardly any difference to their end-of-season prospects, as the 12th-placed Eagles sit 12 points above the drop zone and 11 adrift of the top seven with eight games left to play.
Consolidating their mid-table standing will be the ultimate goal for Hodgson now, and his side have only lost one of their last six in the Premier League, as well as stringing together a three-game unbeaten run at home – keeping a trio of clean sheets to boot.
Another shut-out this weekend would see Palace record four consecutive clean sheets on home soil for the first time in the top flight since 1992, but on a personal level, Hodgson is enduring a six-
game losing streak against Chelsea and is seemingly fighting a losing battle to avoid making that seven against a resurgent Blues outfit.
Not even the most pessimistic of Chelsea supporters could have envisaged their side’s collapse against West Bromwich Albion at Stamford Bridge, as Sam Allardyce’s men ruined Tuchel’s perfect clean sheet record at home by notching up five goals against the 10-man Blues.
Despite the embarrassing manner of that defeat, Tuchel’s side responded immediately by taking control of their Champions League quarter-final
with Porto, as goals either side of the break from Mason Mount and Ben Chilwell propelled the London outfit to a resounding 2-0 win in their ‘away’ leg in Seville.

One crushing defeat hardly signals the end of the world for Tuchel, but his side have now slipped out of the top four following West Ham United’s win at Wolverhampton Wanderers, and Liverpool could also rise above the fifth-placed Blues if they beat Aston Villa a couple of hours beforehand on Saturday.
However, another three points for Chelsea would indeed propel them back into the Champions League places before West Ham’s crunch match with third-placed Leicester City on Sunday, and Tuchel travels to Selhurst Park with his unbeaten away record still intact, as his side have won six and drawn two of their last eight on the road.
Tuchel could match Luiz Felipe Scolari’s record of navigating his first six Premier League away matches at Chelsea unbeaten this weekend, and the Blues have come up trumps in eight of their last 10 away fixtures with Crystal Palace, who lost 4-0 at Stamford Bridge earlier in the campaign
